LANSING, MI – February 10, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — Sen. Roger Kahn, R-Saginaw Township, announced Monday that he will host two forums open to the public on how to appeal property tax bills.
“Many residents have received their assessment sheets in the mail, or will receive them soon,” Kahn said. “Unfortunately, your bill will likely show an increase in taxes but a decrease in value. In some cases, you can appeal to lower your tax bill, but you only have a narrow window of time to do so.”
The free forums will feature attorney Mike Bosnic, who handles property tax appeals in his practice. Bosnic will discuss appeal methods and common mistakes to avoid, and answer questions from area taxpayers.
The forums are scheduled as follows:
Thursday, Feb. 19
Thomas Township Public Safety Building
8215 Shields Drive
Saturday, Feb. 28
Gratiot Senior Center
1329 Michigan Ave
“I encourage the public to attend and be informed of your rights as a property owner,” Kahn stated.
